Do You Freak Out When Your Check Engine Light Comes On?
This one sight can strike terror into the hearts of grown folks across the world, often stopping them in their tracks--literally. It happened to me, and now I am in full-on freak out mode.
I'm talking about the 'check engine' light. Mine came on, and daaaang it, I can't think about anything else now. I went to a local auto parts store to have the engine code checked, and I was told my little Passat has a "very small evaporative emission system leak." Great. Kiss my you-know-what, Code P0456.
This means that a) I just need a new gas cap or b) my car could explode and kill me in a fiery ball of death at any given moment.
Fun, huh? I have to wait until tomorrow to have it checked out by an actual mechanic, but I don't know if my anxiety will allow me to function in society until then. I'm a mess.
